Exciting General Mills Cereal News!

I have been eating General Mills cereals since I was a kid. Lucky Charms were always and still are a favorite of mine. Little one loves Cheerios, both regular, Honey Nut and Apple Cinnamon. General Mills cereals have always been a staple around our house and we were excited to find out new information about them.
General Mills recently made an announcement and a commitment to further reduce sugar in their line of cereals advertised to kids 12 and under to single digit grams of sugar per serving. The company has already been reducing sugar in their cereals while increasing key nutrients such as calcium and vitamin D and providing whole grain.

Did you know that ready-to-eat cereal eaters consume less fat, less cholesterol and more fiber than non-cereal eaters? Cereals also deliver important vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, making cereal a top source of key nutrients in children's diets.

Other cereal benefits include:
*Ready to eat cereals including pre-sweetened cereals only account for only 5% of sugar in children's diets.
*Ready to eat cereal is the No 1 source of whole grains in a child's diet today.
*More frequent cereal eaters tend to have healthier body weights and lower Body Mass Index measures.

Studies also demonstrate the benefits of eating breakfast. A 1998 study showed that children who eat breakfast tend to perform better at school. Compared to children who skip breakfast, children who eat breakfast score higher on tests, are less likely to miss class or be tardy, have fewer reported discipline problems, and make fewer trips to the office.
For more information about kids and cereals, please head on over to Cereal Health and Wellness. There is truly a lot of wonderful and useful information to help you along.

The opinions expressed here are my own. The information and (4) VIP coupons for free General Mills cereal that I received were provided through General Mills and My Blog Spark, special thanks!
